We’ve had a few questions recently about our lash glue – people wanting to know what’s so great about it and why it’s so special – so we thought we’d write a handy-dandy blog post and answer all your pressing questions!
If you want to find out more about why our lash glue is the best in the game, then keep on reading!
Ok, so let’s keep it super real – lots of lash glue out there flat-out sucks. Whether it’s a weird fishy smell, or the fact that it causes wicked irritation (likely due to the fact they’re not really “100% latex-free”), some lash glue just isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
One day, we decided enough was enough – we’re a lash company and we’re lash wearers, and we were hella sick of trying to find a lash glue that’s animal friendly, easy to use, lasts all night, and doesn’t smell weird. So, we decided the time had come to make our own dang lash glue.
We worked tirelessly to make sure that not only would our glue be the best we could possibly get, but that it was free of all the icky crap we don’t want near our eyes (animal by-products anyone?).
After testing (and retesting) our product with a dermatologist, we can happily tell you why our glue is better than the rest
Below we’ve answered a few of the most frequent questions that come our way regarding our glue.
Super Quick Q&A
Q. Is your glue *really* vegan?
A. Ya huh. It contains NO animal by-products and is 100% vegan.
Q. Ok, but is it *really* latex-free?
A. You bet it is. For real, for real.
Q. Are there any other nasties in it that I should know about?
Q. How long does it take to dry?
A. It’s really quick to dry – 15 – 30 seconds max (depending on just how tacky you like it) and it dries perfectly clear so it’s perfect for liner and no-liner days.
Q. How long does it last?
A. Honestly? Ages. We’ve partied our butts off in the sweaty Coachella heat, we’ve danced til dawn at more nightclubs than you can poke a stick at, we’ve sat out in the hot-ass sun on a patio drinking mimosas all day and we can tell ya, it’s not budging.
Q. How do I get it off once I’m ready to part ways with my lashes?
A. For more info on that check out this blog and keep on reading – we touch on removal below!
Q. Can you tell me about the applicator? It looks like it comes in a tube, right?
A. Sure! The applicator is SUPER thin, making it exceptionally easy to apply just the right amount of lash glue to the lash band. No need to tip it out onto a surface and run the lash band through it or anything crazy like that!
Now – that Q&A time is over, it’s time for a little glue pro-tip.
The best way to apply our glue (or any lash glue, for that matter) is to dab a thin layer onto the lash band and allow it to dry for 15 – 30 seconds. You want the glue to be tacky and blowing on it lightly can help to expedite this process.
So, now for the removal process. Because this is a latex-free formula (like really, really it is latex-free) it’s best removed with an oil-based makeup remover. Gently press a cotton pad doused in makeup remover to your eye, let it sit and chill for 15-20 seconds and then slowly swipe to the side. Note: don’t pull or press too hard, you need to be *super* delicate around your eyes. Once you’ve done this your lashes should slide right off. Tidy up an extra glue by gently removing it with your fingers or a q-tip. Keyword: gentle. These babies are hand made so you’ve gotta to be veryyyy careful.
If you have any residue left on your eye then just repeat the process, swiping a cotton pad with makeup remover across your eye.
So, what are you waiting for? Add our glue to your cart, baby! But really, we are all about happy customers. If you’re not psyched about our glue (or any of our products, for that matter) or if you have any questions, then please get in touch via email and we’ll make things right.
